Alka's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase bangles, earrings, necklaces, etc in order to expand her jewelry business.

Alka's story

Alka is a married 24-year-old woman from a little village in Dahod district, Gujarat. She runs a jewelry business where she sells different varieties of bangles, earrings, necklaces, etc. She has a household of two members and a monthly household income of INR 11,000.

She is planning to add more varieties of bangles, earrings, necklaces, etc., to her store. She also plans on selling other kinds of jewelry. By purchasing stocks of bangles, earrings, necklaces, etc., she aims to expand her business. However, her monthly household income is not enough to meet these needs. Therefore, she has applied for a loan of INR 20,000 from Prayas, one of Milaap's field partners.

She and her family will be grateful for the kind support.
